Shower the People Lyrics - James Taylor



Review The Song (8)


You can play the game and you can act out the part
Though you know it wasn't written for you
But tell me, how can you stand there with your broken heart
Ashamed of playing the fool
One thing can lead to another; it doesn't take any sacrifice
Oh, father and mother,and sister and brother
if it feels nice, don't think twice (yes)

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna work out fine if you only will(do as i say, yeah)
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

You can run but you cannot hide
This is widely known
And what you plan to do with your foolish pride
When you're all by yourself alone
Once you tell somebody the way that you feel
You can feel it beginning to ease
I think it's true what they say about the squeaky wheel
Always getting the grease.

Better to shower the people you love with love
(Yes and) show them the way that you feel
(I know) Things are gonna be just fine if you only will
(what i'd like to do to you)
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel

They say in every life
They say the rain must fall
Just like the pouring rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine oh
Oh yes, Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine yeah
Oh, right, Everybody, everybody, everybody, everybody

Every time I heard this song, it bring tears to my eyes, but joyful tears, it's such lovely song, I always put the volume up so I can sing along with it...Thank you James for making us soft and tender inside.

This song makes my heart so tender, I can't describe the enormous feeling of love and warmth inside my being. It's so hard to sing it without running tears and feeling your heart wrinkled, but with joy of loving.
Thank you James for such a wonderful gift of song and wisdom.

This song reminds me of the 4th grade, by favorite grade out of all my school years. We sang this at a program and I fondly remember my class surrounding the stereo listening to this song as we tried memorizing it. It was the best years of my life :')



Great classic James Taylor | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/09

Every time I try to sing this song, my throat goes tight, my eyes well up and I can't finish. This song touches me in a way that I still can't understand..... and I'm a 60 year old man. I was a kid when I first heard. Liked it then, still do.



MY JAM! | Reviewer: Nora Yang | 9/26/08

After I heard this song from my choir teacher, I fell in love. I was even more excited when we sang it for graduation. My BOO (boyfriend) was the soloist. Right when the choir finished performing shower the people for graduation, the sun came out. It was a beautiful closing act and a wonderful day!!



Awesome Sauce | Reviewer: Anthony | 6/23/07

I recently saw him on an episode of SNL singing this song, and I nearly busted a nut. It was so good. I also loved with he did the Antler Dance with the rest of the cast.
